Most of us learned from a young age to equate success with money and power. We hold high-powered CEOs, rich entrepreneurs and celebrities on pedestals, assuming that because they are “successful,” they have it all. We click through their Instagram feeds in awe, we binge-watch their reality television shows, and we spend our hard-earned money to see them speak and perform. But do we ever wonder if they are actually HAPPY?

I invite you to redefine success with me today. I invite you to acknowledge that SUCCESS IS A STATE OF MIND. Something we all have access to. Something we can choose to tap into. And in this episode, I'm showing you how.

Power quotes from this episode:

"When we operate from a place of power, we understand that if we believe we are successful, then we are."

"I invite you to acknowledge that success is a state of mind and it is something we all have access to."

Have you ever found yourself clicking around on Instagram or Facebook innocently enough, looking for “inspiration” – only to find yourself feeling totally consumed by someone else's life or business? I know its happened to me, and its happened to pretty much EVERY single woman I know.

In this episode, I'm giving you actionable tips for how to get out of "compare and despair" mode, elevate your thinking, and stop thinking about what SHE'S got and start focusing on what YOU have.

Power quotes from this episode:

"One of the most common qualities of the evolved woman, as I love to call her, is that she does not allow feelings of comparison to swallow her whole."

"When you have mastered yourself, you naturally celebrate another woman: her beauty, her success, and her accomplishments."

"When you stand in your own power, competition dissolves."

“We can’t become what we need to be by remaining who we are” - Oprah.

When we release something from our lives, we allow ourselves to detach from thoughts, feelings, people, and situations that are no longer meant to take up space. Whether it’s a relationship that has run its course, or a job that is no longer a fit for you, or a home you once lived in, we must let go of these things to invite the new. We must let go of the past in order to evolve. And as I always say, an evolving mind is a healthy mind. In this episode, I'm giving you actionable tools on how to let go and start enjoying the next phase of your life.
